Paint One deck restoration and refinishing services
It’s no secret that all outdoor wood surfaces need to be coated regularly to protect against outdoor conditions. Whether its a deck, pergola or a dock, if left unprotected, outdoor wood structures will turn a gray color and will decay over time. Coating your outdoor wood surfaces is an important scheduled maintenance that needs to be performed regularly. Wood surfaces exposed to UV rays dry out under the warm sun. Add rain, salt, and blistering heat, and it won’t take long for a dock to decay.

Sealing versus staining
Sealing and staining are two different processes. Sealing exterior wood surfaces consist of applying a clear coat of sealant to seal pores making the wood surface waterproof. By using a quality sealer that prevents the drying and bleaching effect of UV rays, exterior wood surfaces will be protected from turning grey color (weathering).
Other the other hand, wood staining is used to alter the color of the wood surface being treated. There are many stain colors to choose from. The more opaque the stain, the more it will conceal the wood grain. There are two main types of wood stain products: dye and pigment. Dye-based wood stain products are used to stain wood surfaces with smaller pores. Pigment-based wood stain products are used to tint wood surfaces with larges pores.
Staining versus painting wood surfaces
There are several differences to consider when choosing between wood staining and painting wood surfaces. Paint One can recommend the best approach based on the condition of your deck, pier or dock. Keep in mind that if you decide to have your deck painted and you change your mind in the future, removing the coat of paint will take a substantial amount of work. So you should plan long term when choosing a process to restore/refinish your deck.
Painting your deck will add a coat of colored material atop the wood surface. This will cause the wood grain and texture to be much less visible. On the other hand, a coat of paint will hide blemishes on the wooden surface and consequently reduce the prep work required (ie, more economical). If you decide to have deck stained, the finished look will be more natural and will show the wood grain and texture of the surface, but will also show imperfections in the wood surface of there are any.
